MATRIX is showing their commitment to the arts, partnering with beloved Australian musical Strictly Ballroom, which has just hit Melbourne’s Her Majesty’s Theatre. Matrix will provide its collection of professional products to create bold, graphic hair looks that are audacious in both colour and shape, creating a seamless sense of natural glamour and the heightened reality of the stage.
Anticipation for the Melbourne tour is high as Strictly Ballroom comes off the back of its successful Sydney season. The well-known story set in the world of ballroom dancing is derived from acclaimed Director Baz Luhrmann’s stage play-turned-movie, that went on to become one of Australia’s most successful films of all time. $80 million at the box office, eight BAFTA nominations and other accolades provide a solid basis for what has now become a beloved stage musical in its own right.
“From a small student play to my first motion picture and now a full-blown theatrical stage musical, Strictly Ballroom has been an almost thirty year journey for me,” Baz Luhrmann shared. “I have often marvelled at how this story, born so long ago, has been in my life for so many years and has managed to touch, move, entertain and uplift so many different people from so many different backgrounds.”
The stage musical includes the film’s trademark musical numbers such as Love is in the Air and Time After Time, as well as modern inclusions by Eddie Perfect and Sia. The elaborate costumes were designed by Oscar Winner Catherine Ma.
No stranger to lending their products to the stage, whether on the dance floor or the runway, Matrix’s range of styling products, cleansing shampoos and weightless conditioners should be the perfect tool to create the striking hair looks. The styles are designed to catch the eye from every seat in the house.
With Strictly Ballroom now a definitive part of Aussie pop cultural history, a dynamic season making its Melbourne debut and a stellar hair brand on board, we’re eager to see what’s to come.
